One thought on “Nothing is too much for Republicans to ignore

  1. An interesting article, in that it claims that even among Trump supporters, nepotism (exploiting one’s kinship) is more annoying than grifting (exploiting one’s money). Perhaps that makes sense; Trump supporters are disproportionately in social classes when “starting a business and making a bundle” is a common goal, and so exploiting that bundle will be seen as natural. (The Democratic Party is dominated by “professional employees” for whom starting a business is rarely in the cards.) But the largest group of beneficiaries of their parents’ money in the US today are the children of the well-off professional employees, who work very hard to track their children into similar jobs and a lot of people in the Trump-supporting classes think that systematically shuts them out of getting better-paying jobs.
